Abstract

This report describes the results of research during the past nine months on the project, “Application of Intelligent Automata to Reconnaissance.” The primary goal of this project is to investigate techniques in artificial intelligence applied to the control of a mobile automaton in a realistic environment. The main emphasis is on the design of a hierarchy of computer programs that will accept visual and other sensory information from the automaton and direct its actions toward the completion of missions requiring the abilities to plan ahead and to learn from previous experience.

The vehicle and special hardware (except for the visual preprocessor) have all been completed and checked out. The preprocessor has been completed and checkout is now beginning. A large body of software has been written to control the vehicle , and preliminary experiments have been conducted in which the computer has generated commands that the vehicle has successfully executed.

Since the special hardware constructed for the project has been described in detail in previous interim reports, the emphasis in this report is on explaining the software being written to control the automaton system.
